An EFLM Scientific Research Grant for £10,000 is open for applications

The EFLM Scientific Research Grant, awarded annually, has been established to promote science and facilitate research in Laboratory Medicine in Europe.

Full ACB members are eligible to apply for one of the grants (to the maximum amount of € 10,000).

Applicants must submit a detailed budget of the study with a list of all required reagents or consumables, necessary to perform their study.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that allocated funds are sufficient to allow completion of the study. If additional funds are needed, a letter of support from a third party is provided that confirms that the rest of the budget shall be covered by that third party.

The responsibility of the selected applicant is to publish the findings of the study in an international (preferably) or national peer-reviewed journal, within two years, after receiving the grant. The grant's recipient who fail to fulfil this requirement shall be automatically disqualified from all future applications for any other EFLM award, bursary or grant within the next five years. The selected applicant can apply for this grant only once.

Eligible applications will be judged by a Research Grant Evaluation Committee. Applications will be evaluated according to selected criteria outlined here -
